Does Xeomin Look Natural?

In a world where beauty and youthfulness are highly valued, it’s no surprise that non-surgical cosmetic treatments like XEOMIN have become increasingly popular. At Eternal Dermatology + Aesthetics in Fulton, MD, we are committed to providing top-notch dermatological services, always prioritizing your natural beauty. This treatment can enhance your looks while allowing you to maintain a natural appearance.

Natural-Looking Results With XEOMIN

XEOMIN is a neurotoxin that works by relaxing the muscles beneath your skin that are responsible for wrinkles and lines. Similar to BOTOX, XEOMIN contains botulinum toxin type A, but it is unique because it undergoes an additional step during manufacturing to remove unnecessary proteins. This results in a pure form of the toxin, which may minimize the body’s ability to develop resistance.

The key question many patients have is, “Will I still look like me after the treatment?” The answer is a resounding yes. This treatment provides subtle, natural-looking results. It softens the appearance of lines and wrinkles without compromising the natural expressions and movement of your face. When applied by skilled professionals, XEOMIN can enhance your beauty without giving an ‘overdone’ look.

Experience and Expertise Matter

The results of your treatment largely depend on the experience and skill of the administering professional. At Eternal Dermatology + Aesthetics, we’re fortunate to have the expertise of Dr. Ife J. Rodney and Dr. Lauren C. Payne. Dr. Rodney, the founding director of our practice, brings her extensive experience in all aspects of cosmetic dermatology to the table. Drawing on her advanced training in leading injectables like XEOMIN, she ensures patients benefit from natural-looking results.

Similarly, Dr. Payne, with her background in Neurobiology and Behavior and her tenure at George Washington University and Howard University, brings a wealth of knowledge and a unique perspective to our practice. Both Dr. Rodney and Dr. Payne share a commitment to enhancing the natural beauty of our patients with precision and care.

Tailoring Treatment for Each Patient

Every face is unique, which means every treatment needs to be, too. We believe in understanding your aesthetic goals thoroughly before we begin any treatment. This treatment is carefully injected into specific muscles to achieve the desired effect while retaining natural movement and expressions. The amount used and the areas treated are customized based on your specific needs and facial anatomy.

Treatment FAQs

Who Is a Good Candidate for Treatment?

Ideal candidates are individuals who notice early signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles, especially around the eyes and forehead. These signs may become more pronounced with certain facial expressions. Typically, candidates are adults who are in good health and have realistic expectations about the results. During your consultation, we will evaluate your facial structure, skin type, and concerns to determine if this treatment is right for you.

When Is the Right Time for Treatment?

The appearance of dynamic wrinkles, those that appear with facial expressions, is a common sign that you might benefit from treatment. If these wrinkles persist even when your face is relaxed, it might be the right time to consider this treatment. Preventative measures can also be a compelling reason to start early, as XEOMIN can prevent the deepening of existing wrinkles.

How Do I Prepare for Treatment?

Preparation for treatment is straightforward. We recommend that you avoid alcohol and any medication that can thin the blood, such as aspirin, a few days before your treatment. This will help to minimize any potential for bruising at the injection sites. It’s also essential to discuss your medical history and any medications you are currently taking with our team during your consultation.

What’s It Like?

During the treatment, we’ll inject your treatment using a fine needle into the specific muscles causing wrinkles and lines. Each session usually takes less than 30 minutes, making it convenient for even the busiest schedules. Our doctors’ precision and expertise ensure a targeted application that prioritizes your natural beauty.

How Long Do Results Last?

The results of this treatment typically become noticeable within 3-4 days post-treatment, with the full effect appearing at about two weeks. These results generally last around three to six months. The longevity of the results can vary based on individual metabolic rates and the facial area treated, however.

What Are Aftercare and Maintenance Like?

Following treatment, patients can return to their normal activities almost immediately. To maintain the results, we recommend regular follow-up appointments. With a good skincare routine and regular treatments, this treatment can help you maintain a youthful, vibrant appearance.
